Tapper Presses Pelosi On Reelection Until She Gives Him This Answer

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sidestepped CNN anchor Jake Tapper during a Sunday morning interview, refusing to answer the host about her future plans.

Tapper pressed Pelosi about whether she planned to run for re-election and she danced around the question before saying that she would be discussing it with her family before the press.

Tapper shifted focus to the filibuster and the fact that President Joe Biden had indicated he would support a carve-out allowing for a new voting rights act to bypass the 60-vote threshold avoiding a Republican filibuster.

“It’s fundamental to our democracy. Now mind you, just to remind, when what’s his name was president was – and the Republicans were in power,” Pelosi replied.

“Donald Trump?” Tapper interjected but she ignored him.

“Mitch McConnell pulled back the filibuster to enable, with simple majorities, three justices to go to the Supreme Court for life. You would think that they could pull it back for the American people to have the vote in a way –”

“So you’re on board with that –” Tapper interjected.

“I’m on board, it’s the most important vote -” Pelosi responded.

“You’re leading the way… Are you going to run for re-election?” Tapper asked.

“You think I’m going to make an announcement right here and now?” Pelosi quipped.

“Yeah. Why not? You’re going to run for re-election, though, yes?” he asked and Pelosi laughed.

“Why would I tell you that now?” Pelosi said sarcastically, still laughing.

“It’s not just me, it’s the American people, the world, it’s an international show,” He pressed.

“I probably would have that conversation with my family first, if you don’t mind,” Pelosi said.

“Thank you so much. Best of luck with the legislation,” Tapper said, letting it go. “I know it’s a heavy lift.”
